Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

669. The Bond of Perfectness

1 How sweet this bond of perfectness,
The wondrous love of Jesus;
A pure foretaste of heaven’s bliss,
Oh, fellowship so precious!

Refrain:
Oh, brethren, how this perfect love
Unites us all in Jesus!
One heart, and soul, and mind we prove
The union heaven gave us.

2 The bond that circles heaven’s pure—
Oh, wondrous, wondrous story!—
Has dropped around the holy here,
And fills us all with glory. [Refrain]

3 Oh, praise the Lord for love divine
That binds us all together;
A thousand chords our hearts entwine,
Forever and forever. [Refrain]

4 “God over all and in us all,”
And through each holy brother;
No pow’r of earth or hell, withal,
Can rend us from each other. [Refrain]

5 Oh, mystery of heaven’s peace!
Oh, bond of heaven’s union!
Our souls in fellowship embrace,
And live in sweet communion. [Refrain]
